Cool 'Busa [Inline] Trike

Old as this is it may have already been around a few times...

Seems a waste, but still a work of art

Very cool. I saw a custom pro street on American Thunder TV show that did the same thing. His unit was easily removable . People that invent and make things are to be admired by all.

I totally disagree. This 3-wheeled Hayabusa is useless, IMO. It adds zero functionality, and it's uglier than a 2-wheeled Hayabusa. And that's pretty hard to accomplish. Heck...all the guy did was extend the swing arm. No big deal what-so-ever.

Wellllll.....that leetle accessory is a big deal, though. Didn't know a 'Busa needed THREE headlights!!!

Ooops, make that FOUR headlights!

If you do the "physics" on the swingarm, as the pivot point moves toward the ground it will lift the rear wheel off the ground...

I'm betting this bike doesn't go faster than 20mph cruising down the strip. Just another biker/owner/poser yelling "Look at me! Look at me!". Yippee!

Thumbs down Can you turn it..

I think the most important issue would be turning the damn thing..

At speed you'd be dragging the rear wheel sideways. Very dangerous...
